No-log VPN for ultimate digital privacy
What does “no-log VPN” mean?

What does “no-log VPN” mean?

A VPN that doesn’t keep usage logs will not store details like your:

  • IP address
  • Browsing history
  • Used bandwidth
  • Session information
  • Network traffic
  • Connection timestamps

Does Surfshark keep logs?

In short, Surfshark VPN does not keep track of your online whereabouts or actions in any way. The VPN server only keeps enough data to keep your VPN connection going, and nothing of it is kept after you’re done.

How do other VPN providers compare?

Price No logs policy Country of jurisdiction RAM-only servers Independent security audit Obfuscation Ad & tracker blocking

  • Country of jurisdiction is important to make sure that the local laws do not force VPN providers to keep logs.
  • RAM-only VPN servers allow for improved privacy, since they are fully wiped when turned off. 
  • Independent security audit ensures more transparency when looking at VPN companies – and proves they prioritize security.
  • Obfuscation hides VPN traffic – which means that your ISP (or anyone else, for that matter) cannot tell you’re using a VPN.

Stay private from your ISP

Did you know that your ISP (Internet Service Provider) can see all the websites you visit?

Most ISPs are required to store this information for years – and in the US, they can legally sell (anonymized) information like this. Even if you feel like there’s nothing you want to hide, it’s a huge breach of privacy.

It’s crucial to choose a VPN that does not keep any logs: even if your VPN provider is asked or subpoenaed to reveal your user logs, it will not work. They cannot give up information that never existed in the first place!

Don’t risk your ISP leaking personal information to third parties and go with a no-logs VPN service.

Does a zero log VPN exist?

The short answer is no, a zero log VPN does not exist.

In theory, it is possible to create such a VPN, however, it isn’t very feasible nor would it be very user friendly. Since some information is required to create user accounts, authenticate them, and for billing purposes, that would all have to be processed in the most anonymous ways that are currently available, e.g. only crypto payments.

Plus, some anonymized information (such as crash reports) is required in order to keep the applications running smoothly and fix issues.

What non-sensitive information does Surfshark require?

Here’s what personal data we collect:

  • Email address and encrypted password (we can’t see your actual password)
  • Basic billing information and order history

Why do we need this information?

  • We need your email in order to help you fix any issues that you may encounter. 
  • We need your billing information to successfully create your account. Your billing information will include your payment amount, currency and the date of the payment, as well as what you chose to purchase. You can also opt for total anonymity and pay with cryptocurrency.

Here’s the anonymous information we collect to keep the apps running smoothly:

  • Aggregated, anonymous performance data 
  • The frequency of use of our services
  • Crash reports on apps
  • Unsuccessful connection attempts

Why do we need this information?

We only collect the bare minimum amount of user data so we can fix any technical issues on a whim. None of this data can be tied to your account.
